right now in the united states. what we have, in fact, is a system and senate discuss, it's startling when i heard this. the nation has a demand nearly for 120,000 computer science engineers, but our universities only produce 40,000 people. this is an indictment of our educational system. we need to fix that. we need to get to a point in this country where we have 120,000 people graduating to meet the demand. but in the short term right now we have to deal with the fact that of those 80,000 jobs, those 80,000 graduates are not created here, those jobs are still going to exist. they're just not going to exist here. these companies are not going to wait for us to produce more graduates. these companies are not going to wait for us to fix our immigration system. they have a business to run and if they can't find the people they need to fill these jobs, they will just send those jobs to another country. let me to you what that means in practical terms. the high-paying jobs in these industries will be paying the taxes to some other country, will be simply an economy and some of the country

, john kerry bid good-bye to the united states senate today in an emotional lookback on his career. he talked about the importance of listening, not just to his fellow senators, but to the people they represent. . >> i came to the national mall, 1971 with fellow veterans who wanted to talk to our leaders about the war. president nixon tried to kick us off the mall. but we knocked on door after door of capitol hill and too often couldn't get an audience. a precious few, including ted kennedy and hubert humphery came to where we were camped out. i saw firsthand that our political process works only when leaders are willing to listen. >> he left the floor to a standing ovation capping off nearly three decades of public service. and it set off a mad political scramble to his senate seat. today, massachusetts governor picked boston lawyer as an interim replacement. >> so who is mr. callan? and is scott brown gearing up for a comeback? >> joining me now is susan mil ler ligan and contributor to the last lion, the biography of the late senator ted kennedy. thank you both for coming on the sho

hasn't gone away. anytime you've got 36 united states senators who voted down sandy relief a couple days ago, you know that something has fundamentally changed about the way that republicans talk about government. so i think it's too early to say that they're dead, but all the things dana points to are good signs and signs of some kind of sanity seeping in. >> and dana, maybe it's all in a name. because i think what continues on for sure is this conservative domination particularly in republican primaries. i mean, here you've got mitch mcconnell being threatened now in kentucky and next year's election from the right. >> right. and the tea party's never really been an organized political force. and i'm using that as a shorthand for the far right that's been dominating the party right now. and as i point out in the column, that force really isn't going anywhere because of the redistricting, because of the way things are structured in the house. and because of this primary system. we also have zaxby chambliss bowing out rather than face a primary challenge. the element of the party is

and really defanning, they sent over this horrible legislation. we stopped it all in the united states senate. but yeah, so the good news is that strong e.p.a. can really make progress. now, a lot of the special interests, the big oil the big coal, they'll scream and yell. and sue. but the fact is it's clear that the clean air act covers carbon pollution. now, the rest of it are smaller pieces like agriculture and about 7% of the emissions. and about 11% come from buildings. and i'm going to try to go after that 11%. in a good way. by essentially putting out sort of a revolving fund, people are older homes big landlords with older buildings can borrow, interest-free, to make these homes energy efficient. that's going to save a lot of pollution. it is going to stop a lot of pollution. i think we can actually do something here. now, we have a lot of tremendous amount of opposition. >> stephanie: yeah. and it is so surprising from the house republicans. senator, i could talk to you all morning. you have to tell me quickly about the line act before you go. there may be nothing else more important

specifically, one about the lack of health insurance in the united states and its effect on health and health care outcomes and share thinking on practical solutions to the primary physician care shortage we face. to start off, there's literature that is accrued over decades demonstrating a lack of health insurance is associated with decreased access to health care, and worse health outcomes. there's a six volume series earlier this century, and the conclusions were clear. subsequent work built on this evidence including my own that senator sanders mentioned in his opening statement, specifically, a paper published in 2009 in the american journal of public health linking lack of insurance to nearly 45,000 deaths among adults in the united states annually. the research is consistent, health insurance leads to significant benefits, and it's good for your health. gaping accessing -- gaining health insurance does not guarantee access to medical care, second part of the testimony, nor does it control costs, and, maps. singular innovation to make at the national level to reduce costs and improve ou

they are on the books. the attorney general of the united states, eric holder, during the richmond program, he called it a cookie cutter approach to solving crime. he did not have a lot of enthusiasm about it. i remember 7 -- senator sessions held a hearing. the department of justice said that a drug dealer with a gun is a guppy and we cannot concentrate on guppies. those studies are what are ruining neighborhoods, destroying lives, and killing people. we've got to confront their behavior and take them off the street. they do not obey by all the laws that we have now. we've got to get real with what works and does not. my problem with background checks is that you are never going to get criminals to go through universal background checks. and of the law-abiding people, you will create an enormous federal theocracy -- bureaucracy, unfunded, and people have to pay the fees, pay the taxes. we do not even prosecute anybody right now that goes through the system we have. we will make all of those law- abiding people go through the system and then we will not prosecute any of the bad guys if they do catch
